, and there are a ton of questions. and even though president obama's reelection was settled at about 11:15 p.m. eastern last tuesday, the election overall is still underway in some parts of the country, including one place where it appears to have mostly just broken down with a bunch of federal level races still undecided. and the state in question is not florida for once. important updates coming up there including what may be a deconcession by a democrat who previously thought he had lost in a big important u.s. senate race. that's all ahead. >>> but we have to begin with breaking news out of washington. "the washington post" is reporting tonight that president obama is considering massachusetts senator john kerry as his new secretary of defense. that's right, defense. putting the decorated veteran and former presidential candidate in charge at the pentagon and not at the state department, as had been widely speculated. "the washington post" is sourcing its reporting to unnamed senior administration officials. senator kerry is also not commenting tonight. if senator kerry does move to the cabinet for
two days before allen, president obama ea's nome to take over as nato commander was scheduled to testify at his confirmation hearing. that hearing has been put on hold. this ongoing cyber drama love saga that would shame even the writer of "general hospital" there's even a set of twins involved but we don't have time to get into it, comes one day before president obama holds his first press conference after his re-election. joining me now is jonathan allen. >> the other john allen. >> the other john allen. all we're missing now is for someone to wake up from a coma in a hospital and reveal they were the rightful commander of the troops. i mean the thing, this has spiraled and seemingly almost out of control. the reality, of course, is that there are 68,000 troops in afghanistan, we have military conflict in the middle east, what does this say and do to the leadership on the defense side? >> look, unless you believe that these are the only men that could carry out these jobs well, then the defense infrastructure and the national security infrastructure of the united states shou
like those things. and it certainly didn't get thrilled when obama won the first time. pretty miserable now that he's won again. in fact, it can't believe it. it looks at your america, this world of the actual election results, as a stranger in a strange land. for days now it's been in a daze wandering around wondering, what gimmick switched the channels? what odd happening bounced them from the world they believed in, saw all around them, to the world they find themselves so suddenly and shockingly now a part of, the world that is truly undeniably america. i'm joined to talk about this by the former rnc chair michael steele and mother jones washington bureau chief david corn. he's the author of the ebook "47 percent ,"a great book and a great get. he's an msnbc political analyst. let's start now. in politico jonathan martin describes the gop media cocoon writing, in this reassuring conservative pocket universe rasmussen polls are gospel, the benghazi controversy is worse than watergate, fair and balanced isn't just marketing, and dick morris is a political seer. this morning former hou
's coming from tommy vietor. this is coming the days after president obama won re-election. certainly not how the administration envisioned the first few days of the new term. they are certainly stunned by some of these developments and trying to stay focused on the fiscal cliff, that's something that's pending and potentially could impact all americans, however, this is something they'll have to deal with, president obama is set to hold a news conference this week. he'll get a lot of questions about this. about the timing. about how this entire process has been handled. >> the president is supposed to meet with labor leaders today, obviously the allen and petraeus is taking up a lot of oxygen in washington, d.c., today. but this is an important meeting about how to approach the fiscal cliff to come to a compromise? >> right, there are a couple of different motmotivations for th meetings. one, to get a sense of the different interests coming from business leaders. also, i think president obama would like to get some of these folks on his side to come up with a balanced approach to def
strange. >> more to come. thanks to both of you for coming in. >>> president obama is going to be busy the next couple of days. remember this story, the fiscal cliff, he's meeting today with labor leaders to put heat on congress to come up with a deal. tomorrow the president will meet with chief executives of big business businesses. the president will also hold a news conference. on friday, he meets with democratic and gop leaders of both houses to start negotiations. i earn 1% cash back everywhere, every time.

"politicsnation" with al sharpton starts right now. >>> thanks, chris. and thanks to you for tuning in. tonight's lead -- seven days later, and paul ryan still can't handle the truth. one week after president obama crushed the gop, congressman paul ryan returned to his day job on capitol hill today, carrying his own bags, like much of the republican party, he still seems dazed about the national rejection he took. and in an interview he told a local tv station what it felt like to lose. >> what it had become clear to us as things went on, in avirginia and ohio weren't coming together, that it looked to me some time early in the evening that it just wasn't going to happen. >> and what did that feel like for you? what -- >> it was very disappointing. we had good days, bad days. it was a great
's president obama's proposal. he ran on it. let him implement it. it things slow down, it's his fault and that's fine with me. and i hope things don't slow down. i hope we get real tax reform in 2013. i think picking the fight right now on the expiring bush tax cuts is a mistake. >> can the president allow all of the tax cuts to expire given the impact that's predicted on the economy? >> look, one hopes that these warrings factions that we have in washington will reach a compromise before january 1st. >> but david corn says that's virtually impossible. >> i don't understand what's so hard about this because the other thing that bill kristol said is that back when the economy was strong, he referenced 82 to 85 in the reagan administration when marginal tax rates were 50%, the other time the economy was really strong was during the second clinton administration when marginal tax rates were 39.6%. that's what president obama is talking about doing. going back to 39.6%. the economy took off. this should be a no-brainer. you're asking people to pay a little bit more to help out the whole fiscal hea
much room is the left willing to give president obama on entitlement reform. what is the breaking point? we're going to talk to one of the people who was in that room. fascinating stuff coming up. >>> yes, people are looking forward to 2016 and the name on everybody's list and lips is hillary clinton. the nomination will be hers if she wants it. who doesn't know that? >>> finally, think we're all coming together after the election? not in texas where 60,000 people have signed a petition to secede from the union. what else is new? one gop official down there even wrote a column asking for an amicable divorce from what he called the maggots who elected president obama. read my lips, no new taxes. that republic ain't coming back. this is "hardball," the place for politics. americans are always ready to work hard for a better future. since ameriprise financial was founded back in 1894, they've been committed to putting clients first. helping generations through tough times. good times. never taking a bailout. there when you need them. helping millions of americans over the centuries. the st
. >> getting back to the standoff between republicans in congress and president obama, i wanted to ask about the meeting that took place today. you had labor leaders there. they have said in an interview if medicare and social security are part of any deal that president obama strikes with republicans, labor will be against it. and i look at that and i say, how can that not be part of any deal that obama strikes with republicans? how much trouble will he have on the left selling any deal he reaches? >> it's going to be hard to sell. any deal that deals with those entitlement issues. harry reid said clearly here, social security, we will not touch social security as part of this package. so it's probably going to end upcoming down to e medicare and medicaid. if the president starts to negotiate on those issues because he'll have to do some of that in order to get republicans support on taxes. even mitch mcconnell went to the floor and said, i will consider higher revenues, but the president has to agree to something on entitlements. so the question is, if he does do something, how many democr
chronicle," less than a week from president obama's election, petition from texans to secede from the union. similar petitions have been filed on the white house website from a number of states from florida to oregon. the white house has promised any petition that gained more than 25,000 signatures would get serious going over. and way to be constructive, guys. >>> the washington post, holiday shopping. >> it is. >> created a new term in the retail wars, black thanksgiving, big box stores like walmart, toys r us, and sears would open their doors at 8:00 in the evening on thanksgiving day instead of at midnight. retailers are trying to make the most of what could be an average at best shopping season. time to go to politico. >> don't you sit around at night watching football games or the first christmas show, like rudolph? >> yeah, it's family night, but then again, the economy needs it, so i'm not sure. >> did you see bobby jindal? >> yeah, saying what you said. let's go to the politico playbook's executive editor jim vandehei. in the wake of mitt romney's loss, how are folks in the gop lik
. so today president obama will be meeting with key labor and progressive leaders at the white house for the first in a series of high-profile economic talks he will be hosting this week. >>> to other news, from hurricane sandy and last week's nor'easter to spring-like weather in the east and mercury-plunging in the west, many are asking what is with the crazy extremes in weather? anne thompson has that story. >> reporter: america has a case of weather whiplash. >> 60 degrees as our high on friday. 28 degrees as our high on saturday. >> reporter: this weekend the west went from summer to winter overnight. >> that's winter. >> it's winter. >> reporter: the northeast basks in spring-like temperatures, still recovering from superstorm sandy and the nor'easter that covered her debris in a record snowfall. this year alone the nations endured a withering drought, the largest wildfires in history and the warmest month on record. in 2011 there were 14 extreme weather events, each doing more than a billion dollars in damage. now some politicians are connecting the dots, blaming the gases that
information, no threat to national security. some members of congress say they or at least president obama should have been told about the investigation while it was going on. >> once the fbi realized it was investigating a director of the cia or the cia director had come within its focus or scope, i believe at that time they had an absolute obligation to tell the president. not to protect david petraeus, but to protect the president. >> justice department officials say the fbi never tells other agencies when it's in the middle of a criminal investigation. they note that federal law says that congressional intelligence committees must be notified of all "intelligence activities." an affair did not meet that test they concluded. they say the fbi is sensitive to its past when former director j. edgar hoover gathered personal details about government officials to get what he wanted. >> the only reason the fbi should have notified congress was if general petraeus was found to have leaked classified information. that was not the case. so the fbi followed its protocols and did the right thing in
of nato, that process is ground to a halt. it's a distraction that, you know, even obama's reinaugurati reinauguration, everything they are trying to accomplish in the lame duck session has been swamped but this. >> the president or at least his spokesperson having to reiterate he has faith in top commanders. he's having to say that in the wake of scandals. >> these are the two most highly-regarded generals of his generation. one is gone and one is teetering on the brink. where does this end? i think there's a lot of questions. e he says he has great faith in his commanders, but the two bright shining stars who are going to map the strategy for united states military strategy for the next 25 years, one is gone and one is teetering on the brink. >> jim, thank you very much. let me bring in and go back to the search of paula broadwell's home. joining me is pete williams. the question at least last night when you saw the video come out of the fbi agents going into paula broadwell's home, i first thought the investigation was complete. and this all started in the summer. why last night when
.5% of the vote. you can make all kinds of criticisms of mitt romney, but barack obama is not exactly the second coming of franklin dell nor roosevelt either. he is a candidate that doesn't say thank you to people who vote for him. the president has built a stronger coalition, and the republican coalition has been in trouble for a long, long time. republicans look at elections like 2010 and 1994 where a third of the election for ate is over one state. and then they are surprised where they don't win when 16% of the election for ate is over age 65. >> what about the argument you will hear, which is romney was not a consistent conservative. had he been a consistent conservative throughout his political career and had had not flip-flopped to conservatism recently, we would have run our test with a solid conservative candidate, and you can't make the argument against conservative republicanism if romney was the standard bearer of that, because he was such a false standard bearer. >> i voted for mitt romney, and i like moderate mitt from massachusetts, and i am perhaps the last person with something
avoiding the fiscal cliff. >>> and recommend how president obama and mitt romney yukd yucked it up? the president had the last laugh. find out how he did it in today's deep dive. it's not how you think. good morning from washington. it's tuesday, november 13, 2012. this is "the daily rundown." i'm chuck todd. right to my first read of the morning. st when you thought the petraeus story couldn't get more complicated and troubling. it did. lots of headlines to get to on this. another top military general linked to the scandal, marine general john allen, the top american and nato commander in afghanistan. according to a u.s. senior defense official the fbi uncovered between 20,000 and 30,000 pages of e-mails between the general and jill kelley. now kelley is the woman whose initial complaint to the fbi led to the discovery of evidence about the affair between general petraeus and his biographer paula broadwell. defense secretary panetta's comments on the scandal and his future in the obama administration. then there's the fbi agent and friend of jill kel yae's. he's now subject of an
